17 May How to Fake a Drug Test (and How You Get Caught Doing it)
You’ve been good about being clean for the tests, but let’s say you slip up one night and take some drugs the night before your next test.
If the test comes up as positive for drugs, the judge is going to be upset and he or she will give you a hefty penalty. So what do you do? You can’t skip out on the test, and you definitely can’t take the test either.
Basically, you’re left with only one option: fake it. The question is, however, how do you successfully do it?
How to Fake a Drug Test
The only way to completely fake a drug test is to bring in a clean sample of your urine or buy a fake urine sample that is clean of drugs. You could also try drinking so much water that your urine dilutes, but the sample will still come up as positive (although the presence of drugs could be significantly smaller than what it would have been without the dilution). These are the best options out there for those moments where you’d rather not get caught with drugs in your system. Shouldn’t be a problem, right?
Wrong! You will almost always get caught faking drug tests, so it’s better just to say no to the drugs in the first place.
How You Get Caught
A good agency will have someone with you from the moment you walk in to take a drug test to the moment you leave. They will even be present while you provide the sample itself. It’s awkward, yes, but effective. It makes bringing in a fake sample very difficult. But let’s say that you successfully get the sample past the test administrators. If you’ve purchased a test online that claims to be clean, it could be clean of drugs, but full of other, more incriminating substances.
If you do get caught, the prosecutors could charge you with fraud, a judge could hold you in contempt, and it’s considered a violation of your probation, so the court could give you the maximum sentence available for your drug charge.
The moral of the story? Don’t try and fake a drug test. Do your best to stay clean for every test that you’re ordered to complete, and you will come out of the whole situation better. If you do find yourself in a rut, however, give us a call and we’ll help!
